Hugo Duncan: Wouldn't suit me to be without my stage outfits

By Hugo Duncan

I came close to putting myself in a very embarrassing situation at the weekend.

I had been taking part in a show in Cork with Patrick O'Sullivan, and afterwards we adjourned for a cup of tea, for which we were joined by some members of his family.

I had been getting ready for the long journey home and thought I had put everything into the car.

Imagine my surprise when Patrick's wife came running out and held up two of my stage suits to the window.

As I got out of the car, I could not help smiling to myself as she remarked, obviously completely unaware of the pun, "It wouldn't suit you not to be well-dressed when you are performing, Hugo!"
